75cl bottle. It pours a hazy golden / orange colour with a big white head. Foam vanishes quickly. Aroma is sour and refreshing, citrusy and funky, some dust and some urine. Nice but not the most complex. Taste is slightly sweet, medium acidic with a mostly tart and dry finish. Notes of lemon zast and citrus are dominant, with loads of funk, and some dust. Body is quite light with lively carboantion. Overall, very nice geuze, maybe a bit thin in body and not as complex as other examples of the style.

Bouteille de 750 ml, merci beaucoup à Dany et Marie-France. Arômes de brettanomyces rappelant le foin et le citron. Robe blonde, plutôt limpide, belle effervescence et mousse tenant bien. En bouche, les brettanomyces sont à l’avant-plan, contribuant principalement des notes rustiques de foin. Belle présence citronnée et de céréales. Somme toute peu boisée. Finale moyennement acide pour le style. Une très belle gueuze, possédant un lien familial avec la Cuvée René, tout en montrant son propre caractère.

750 mL bottle @ De Heeren van Liedekercke. Pours a hazy golden appearance with a nice white head. Somewhat funky/cheesy, quite floral, lemon tart, light vanilla aroma. The Girardin seems to really provide a nice puckering, fairly funky flavor along with a very nice, refreshing lemon tartness, some cheesy, well carbonated flavor with a fairly dry finish. Exceeded my expectations. Very nice.

(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy orange body with a tall off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, horse blanket, minerals, lemon peel, oak, cork, barnyard, mustiness, and mold. Flavor of grapefruit, orange, lemon, tangerine, apricot, and minerals with a dry finish.

Split this bottle at a sour tasting. Poured a clear-orange color with a thin white head. Aroma was some spice, tart, with some funk character alongside the barnyard. Touch of spice and tart funk notes in the flavor. This was okay, but a bit so so (then again, I don’t really know my Gueuze all that well so this could be a superb representation).

cpetrone84 (1537) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Pour is a hazy light yellow with a slightly off white bubbly head. The nose has a ton of cheesy funk, light leathery brett with a nice sweet appricot to balance. Taste is solid, funk is dialed down a bit, less cheesy rind and more leathery, dusty notes. Sweetness is decent, not super bright but nice lemon, appricot and peach. Fairly sour, dry finish on a light body, assertive carbonation.

My first bottle at de Heeren van Liedekercke & entered as my 100th rating of the month!

Pours a golden color with a small tight white head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is barnyardy right up front with some light lemony and citrus rind aroma. It’s really quite inviting but a little one note, I feel bad saying that though, because it sounds like a bad thing, this smells very good.

The flavor is dry and has a nice white grape character to it, almost champagne like with a moderate level of sourness and a very well defined clean lemony character.

Wonderful.

bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2012
Corked bottle. Orange blonde color. Oak, lemon and peach in the almost vinous aroma. Sour oaky flavor with lemon, grapefruit and hints of pineapple. Good complexity. Lovely gueuze.

Thanks to Blake for sharing! Poured clear, honeyed golden with a tall, fizzy white head. The aroma picked up zesty lemon, foot funk, and light leather over a soft pale malty base.. vinegary on the back of the nose. The flavor found tart lemon, vinegar, and fairly fresh oak on the tip of the tongue.. funky, but a tad restrained.. more vinegar, funk, and some floral notes on the long, refreshing finish. Tangy on the palate with high carbonation.. felt good, but a little too clean.
